This week has gone by really fast for me! We got back from vacation on Sunday and it has just felt like go go go since then. Tons of laundry! That seems to be the worst thing about coming home from vacation…the suitcases full of dirty clothes! Ugh!
Overall it’s been a good week and a lot of changes are coming my way (I will update you on this soon!) so I’m just taking it all in.
1. Finding a good dry shampoo
I try to be consistent about working out every day and I tend to sweat a lot, even in colder weather. I hate having to wash and dry my hair every single day.
I used to think that it was gross not to wash my hair every day, but I got over that. Even after recently going from really long hair to short hair, my hair is usually a disaster after a workout.
I have tried a lot of dry shampoos and I finally found one I absolutely LOVE! If you don’t know what dry shampoo is, it basically freshens up your hair without having to wash it. It works miracles! I tried Suave and Tresemme but really didn’t like them. Suave left my hair feeling stiff, and Tresemme smelled really funny. My favorite now is batiste.
It comes in a few different scents. I have tried several of them and love them all. It makes my hair smell fresh and actually feel fresh! You can find the batiste dry shampoo on Amazon. I like the original or fresh scents the best.
2. Facebook yard sale groups
We are trying to simplify our life and get rid of some of the stuff in our house that has been sitting in the closets. I hate to just throw away things that have value and it would be really nice to get a little money back for these items. The idea of having a garage sale makes me squirm, and I really don’t want to deal with shipping stuff on ebay or craigslist (and I watched the Craigslist Killer movie and it freaked me out!).
I have discovered the world of facebook swip swaps or yard sales. This is where you can join a local private group on facebook and post items that you are wanting to sell. Then when someone is interested, they arrange with you somewhere in town to meet (or you can give them your address if you’re brave) and you give them the item, they pay you cash. So far it’s been super easy! And just in case you’re worried, I obviously only arrange meetings in public parking lots during the day. And, people are genuinely happy to find nice things at a big discount!
If you are looking for one in your area, just type in your city name and “yard sale” or “swip swap” on facebook and you will most likely find one!
Not the town, although I love that too. I’m talking about the TV show Nashville! It was on it’s “winter break” for what seemed like forever and just started back up last week! The drama is so good!
I actually made a workout to go along with this show (click on the picture below for more details)
Multi-tasking at it’s finest right there!
4. My new Fitbit Charge HR
The reason I wanted a Fitbit Charge HR is because of the heart rate component. It has a heart rate sensor built in so I can tell it when I’m working out and it will actively track my heart rate during a workout. It will tell me which zone I’m in and estimate my calorie burn for the workout based on my heart rate level. So stinkin’ cool! I love it!
It’s strawberry season here in Florida and I am obsessed! You may have seen my post on Instagram a few weeks ago about me eating the entire 1/2 flat. Well, I have another one and I’m about to eat through it as well! They are so delicious.
Anyone have any good and healthy strawberry recipes they can share? I’d love to hear them!
Have you discovered any favorites this week?
